Recipe for Bourbon Chicken

Recipe for Bourbon Chicken


1-1/2 lb chicken thighs (boneless is even better)
2 slices ginger or 1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup homemade soy sauce
2 tablespoons dried minced onion

3/4 cup homemade brown sugar
4 TBS bourbon
1/2 teaspoon homemade garlic powder
1 green onion, cut into thirds

PREHEAT oven to 325 degrees and lightly spray a 9x13 pan with vegetable oil.

Combine the remaining ingredients and pour over the chicken. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours, preferably overnight.

Turn the thighs occasionally to make sure they are entirely coated in the marinade.

Bake the chicken for 1-1/2 hours; basting every 15 minutes. The chicken is done when browned well and when the juices run clear. The thermometer reads 170 degrees in the thickest part of the meat. Drizzle more pan juices over the top and cover for 10 minutes before serving.

If using boneless thigh meat, I would check the chicken after 45 minutes to see if it is done. If it needs to bake longer, do so in 10 minute intervals.  Serve over white rice.
